    I was wondering something similar. For all the joy that forum members get from pressure profilers and levers. I have hardly seen a cafe offering either.

    Actually the best coffee I have had in the UK has been a lever produced flat white by a cart near Russel Square. Izzo Pompei with Climpson and Sons Baron blend.

    I don't know if I was just unlucky, but the Brickwood that I tried by Clapham Common was terrible. Tasted like the beans hadn't been properly tamped, or were too coarse, really bad. With the thought of "life is too short for bad coffee" I went just next door to Black Lab and had an excellent coffee. Never went back to Brickwood again.

    Will check out the other SW London one's you've mentioned. Taylor St Barista's are always a solid choice for the city, first came across them in Richmond.

    Saint Espresso is the best I've had consistently on the north side between Baker Street and KX

    Agreed, nice staff and great coffee.
    Just the other side of Kings X I recommend Frequency, Kings Cross Road.

    Roslyn is my current favourite in the City. The department of coffee on Bishopsgate is consistently good, but their branch just around the corner in Spitalfields is all over the place.

    Rosslyn Coffee!

    If you're in the city, on the junction of Cannon St and Queen Victoria St. It's a very smart place, just a coffee shop and nothing else and always excellent service.

    Also noticed last time I was in there, nominated for best new coffee shop in the world (sprudgie awards).. must admit means nothing to me but got to be worth something!

    Not a coffee shop but we are at Farmers Markets in Barnes (Saturday) and Stroud Green (Sunday) where I pull shots using a Londinium L1 and Vesuvius using a lever profile so you can try lever espresso there. Using Compak E10 and Mazzer Royal plus the good old Niche for Decaf.
    Let us know your from the forum and you can pull a shot yourself. Although the Vesuvius uses a lever profile the shots are different. About 50/50 preference when I’ve given both to some of my espresso customers but they’re very close.
    Roasters : Quest M3, Gene CBR-1200 (with full power mod), Probat 5kg , Tonino Brewing : Vesuvius Steel Pipework, Londinium L1, Ponte Vecchio Lusso 2, all manual methods. Grinders : Compak E10, Mazzer Royal, Niche Zero Black, Macap MC7 Deli, OE Pharos, Hausgrind, Feldgrind

    Its been mentioned here before Redemption Roasters in Lamb Conduit St Wc1
    Whilst looking at a bag of their Peruvian beans the barista (Liv) asked if i hurry because she would config a spare grinder with their beans in a hopper.

    Great tasting espresso, made on the same Compak we have at home, on their Slayer. Tried unsuccessfully to make mine at home taste as good.

    When i went back the next day to buy more of the Peruvian, Liv went downstairs to find me a bag with a newer roast date on.
